Humber Galvanizing is celebrating a successful partnership which has seen it help one of its customers protect its handiwork for years to come.
The Hull-based plant has just completed the galvanizing of its 50th figurine on behalf of James Goldbold Blacksmiths in Whitby, with its latest project being a six foot statue of a miner, which took four weeks to create, and which will be installed at the site of the old Eston Hospital in Middlesbrough.
Tony Linsley, Commercial Manager at Humber Galvanizing, commented: “We have been working with James Godbold Blacksmiths for six years now, and we are delighted to have reached this significant milestone.
“We have galvanized many creations on behalf of our customer over the years, including bronze fish in a fishpond and a ewe with its lambs, as well as this latest project. Galvanizing the figures by dipping them in molten zinc at a temperature of 450°C, helps to protect them from environmental elements such as the weather, and provides them with vital lifetime protection.”
The partnership has seen a diverse range of work being undertaken on behalf of individual artists, local authorities, and private organisations across the UK, and has included the fabrication of objects from individually-commissioned bespoke sculptures and elaborate staircases, to public gates and railings.
James Goldbold, Proprietor of James Goldbold Blacksmiths, revealed: “This is a fantastic achievement, and our partnership work ensures that our customers get the best possible service, by not only seeing their creations come to life, but seeing them protected for a whole lifetime.
“We have continued to employ the service of Humber Galvanizing due to the organisation’s reliability, speed of service, and quality of work, and we hope to still be working with them in many years to come.”
